A Look Back...

Great things come from small beginnings……just think of the acorn becoming a mighty oak. So it goes for the early beginnings of The Giving Tree in 1997 when it all started as an informal network of women giving to those in need. The outreach grew until December of 2007, when like-minded women decided to expand and reach for new heights.

What is The Giving Tree of Hummelstown and Hershey?

The Giving Tree of Hummelstown and Hershey is a local grassroots group of passionate, energized women dedicated to providing basic necessities to our community members, adults, and children who are in transition or need support. We operate through a rich database of resources to find solutions. We network and make connections. We provide assistance necessary to help families through times of crisis or transition. We Empower versus Enable and we are there for everyone, not just those who are economically unable.​
